Bike Rack on Rear Bumper

I just purchased a Thule Raceway Platform 2 Bike carrier (9003) for my 2012 Ford Focus 5 door HB.

This carrier is rather heavy, and rests on top of the rear fascia (bumper) of my car. I haven't really used the rack yet, and it is in my trunk for now. Does anyone have experience with this or a similar rack? Here is why I is a heavy bike rack.....approx 35lbs. With my bike added, that's another 28lbs. Will this dent/damage my rear fascia? What is the weight restriction on the fascia.

I realize I should have asked this before before buying the Thule, but I didn't know it was going to be so heavy.
